ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Here goes nothing: I'm often fairly quiet and reserved, but can become gregarious when in the mood. I've been told I'm funny, but that it's hard sometimes to tell if I'm joking or not. I have a dry sense of humor, and I tend to make absurd observations in a very matter-of-fact way. I get nervous in crowds and don't like public speaking, but I'm also pretty good at improvising. I do best one-on-one (unless I've been drinking, in which case I become very social). I like to take long walks, play video games, draw, read, watch movies/certain tv shows, and mess about with computers. I'm Mr. Fix-It around the office, and more and more at my folks' as they get older. I lift weights off and on, have for years. I'm not ripped by any means, but I'm in shape and stronger than I look. Used to play soccer and lacrosse. I'm a big movie/book/television person, usually up on the latest "thing," but with music I like what I like, and it's pretty scattershot.

I'm pretty easy-going and laid back, usually. Very "even-keeled and grounded," as my friends and relatives describe me. I worked with children with mental retardation, psychosis and autism for years, and miss it sometimes. It was a lot of responsibility and it could be extremely stressful, particularly when things got rough in crisis situations. It could be tragic and extremely depressing at times, too. But, I like helping people, and I like kids better than adults most of the time. I don't know why. Possibly because they're by and large innocent, or maybe I just appreciate their honesty and the interesting perspective they bring to the table.

I like to be unpredictable and contrary at times, usually for the sake of humor or because I'm a bit embarrassed of my softer side. In relationships, I'm looking for the sort of girl who would at least call the police were I kidnapped, but she'd really be a keeper if she tracked the culprits down and staged a clever, daring rescue. I would do no less were our situations reversed, so it's only fair. Also, if we were to run out of gas and have to walk 3 miles to the nearest station, I'd prefer the sort of girl that would walk with me rather than wait in the car. If you sit in the car, how would you know if I've been kidnapped or not en route to the nearest gas station?

I come from a large family; I'm one of five, but my brothers are the the youngest, so I grew up with sisters, one older and one younger. The elder's tougher than I am, and the younger is smarter, so I've learned the hard way not to assume much of anything about people. When I did assume, the elder would kickbox my head, and the younger would say hurtful things that I'm still trying to come up with witty retorts to. I'm probably a little old-fashioned in that I value loyalty, commitment, and industriousness over personal gratification, although I do love gratification. I'm sort of an idealist and love to talk about high-falutin' things like the intrinsic (potential) nobility of the human soul and people's capacity to transcend our condition - I have a lot of friends that majored in philosophy. That being said, when I've nothing better to do, Reddit and Cracked are fantastic. I've been told many times that I'm hard to read, and I can be pretty absentminded at times. I often sing when I'm happy (or in the shower/car), and I love to dance (when I don't think anybody's watching or if I've been drinking). I'm one of those people that larger-than-life things tend to happen to, so I've got a bunch of great stories and keep accumulating more, through no fault of my own (usually).
